[Educational Screen] "The film records the successful experiments in the resuscitation of life to dead animals, as conducted by Dr. S.S. Bryukhonenko at the Institute of Experimental Physiology and Therapy, Voronezh, U.S.S.R. According to the New York Times, the experiments are hailed by American biologists as promising a new epoch in medical science, 'bringing closer the day when operations now incompatible with life will be possible'."

In the film, a Martian undercover agent flies from Mars to Earth to learn about the oil industry, and finds that the...

A Date With Your Family, a true suburban horror story, outdoes all other social guidance films by advising kids to do whatever is necessary — even lie — to achieve harmonious family relations. The odd title reveals its odd thesis: that teenagers should treat a family dinner as if it was a date, a date with someone who they really wanted to be with. As the voice of authority tells us, “These boys greet their Dad as though they were genuinely glad to see him, as though they really missed...

Sid's remake of The Terrible Truth is, in many ways, superior to it, if only because by the mid-sixties there were a lot more ways for kids to get themselves into trouble. This is a warning about the path of casual drug usage leading to "the point of no return" and the user being permanently lost to society. Jeanette is introduced to drugs through her new boyfriend and casually pops pills for the first time. However, she rapidly progresses into more extreme forms of drug usage,...

This early nudie-film, showing two naked women lolling around a rocky landscape, is more quaint than erotic. It's not clear what the original purpose was - it appears to be an excerpt from a longer film, and the peculiar title, in combination with the occasional mild nuzzling of the protagonists, suggests some kind of cautionary film about lesbianism. For our purposes, these gentle images of two naked women (one thin, and the other, well, Rubenesque), crossing a meadow picking flowers, climbing...

Like its precursor Name Unknown (1951), Girls Beware is a trilogy of tragedies brought about by teenage girls' attempts at independent behavior. The first, a story of a young woman who accepts a babysitting job from a man whom she does not know, ends with a report that her body has been found on a lonely desert road. As Norma Neufner (the policewoman who narrates the film) says, "You can never find the right words to tell a mother her daughter has been murdered. Judy hadn't done anything...
